Embracing Our Differences is seeking submissions for an outdoor juried art exhibit featuring 50 billboard size images created by local, national and international artists. The display reflects the artists' interpretations of the theme "enriching lives through diversity." The exhibit will be on display January 18 through May 29, 2023, in three locations through Sarasota and Manatee counties in Florida. The winning artworks combine a deep understanding of both medium and message.

Awards: A total of $6,000 (US) will be presented in the form of three separate awards - $2,000 each for “Best-in-Show Adult;” “Best-in-Show Student;” and “People’s Choice.” The “People’s Choice” award will be determined by visitors to the exhibit. (In honor of our 20th Anniversary, this year's awards are doubled from $1,000 to $2,000 each!!)
